The BANK shall not be liable for whatever losses or damages that may arise against the Depositor as a result thereof.
DISCLOSURE OF DEPOSITOR INFORMATION
The BANK shall treat information relating to the depositor, deposit account and transactions on the deposit account as confidential. However, in order to facilitate banking transactions, the Depositor authorizes the Bank to disclose information relating to the depositor, deposit account and transactions on the deposit account, to the following:
All deposits must be made by the Depositor personally or by his authorized representative by filling out the appropriate deposit slip. The BANK shall consider any person depositing for, and on the Depositor’s behalf, as duly authorized by the Depositor to perform the deposit transaction. The BANK shall accept deposits, investments or payments either in cash, check or debit from another account/s. In accepting checks as deposit, the BANK shall act merely as a collecting agent, and shall have no responsibility beyond the exercise of due care in transmitting the items. The Depositor shall not be credited for nor shall the Depositor be allowed to withdraw the amount corresponding to the said checks until cleared funds have been actually received by the BANK. Checks received after the BANK’s cut-off time shall be processed on the next banking day. For acceptance of crossed checks payable to one depositor for deposit to a joint “AND” or “OR” account of said depositor, the depositor commits and undertakes to indemnify the BANK in the event that the issuer of the said check or any affected third party complains, objects, or otherwise files a claim against the BANK as a result of said accommodation. Should the BANK accept for deposit, checks that are not endorsed by the payee, the depositor holds the BANK free and harmless from any and all liabilities, claims and demands of whatever kind and nature that may arise from said accommodation. All endorsements or lack of endorsements on the checks deposited with the BANK are guaranteed by the Depositor. Proceeds of deposit or collection items shall be credited to the Depositor’s account, net of service charges that may be collected by the BANK or by the drawee/collecting bank. The BANK shall not be liable for items lost in transit. The Depositor shall have full responsibility for the correctness, genuineness, and validity of all items deposited as well as of all endorsements, signatures and information found thereon. For all deposits including, but not limited to, deposit subject to count arrangement or for later verification, the Depositor acknowledges that the BANK’s count is deemed accurate and final. All notes and coin deposits must be sorted according to denomination and the BANK’s prescribed number of pieces per bundle/bag prior to acceptance. The BANK has the right to debit automatically, the Depositor’s account for any shortages or discrepancies due to counterfeit or out-of- circulation cash notes/coins, insertion, and/or errors in counting, which were found after our receipt of cash items, despite any machine-validated or manually-signed acknowledgement receipt. The BANK reserves the right to refuse any deposit contemplated herein should such refusal be necessary to protect the BANK’s own interest. The BANK shall be held free and harmless from any claim or dispute arising from the execution and implementation of the present Terms and Conditions. In making a deposit, the Depositor agrees to assume full responsibility for the accuracy and correctness of the information filled out in the deposit slip, and the Depositor further agrees to hold the BANK free and harmless from any liability for losses due to any discrepancy therein, such as but not limited to, the statement of an incorrect account number although the name of the Depositor is correctly written. The Depositor agrees that for Foreign Currency accounts that the Depositor opens, these shall be funded purely by foreign currency receipts eligible for deposit under CB Circular No. 960 as amended by CB Circular No. 1318, and the Depositor undertakes to hold the BANK free and harmless from liability for deposits made in violation of said law, rules and circulars. The BANK shall endeavor to keep on hand an updated balance of the Depositor’s account. It is however the duty of the Depositor to periodically ascertain from the BANK the actual balance based on cleared funds. The BANK has the right to offset the deposit against any indebtedness owed by the Depositor to the BANK without need of prior notice to said Depositor. Deposits under hold-out, garnishment, sequestration, with adverse claim, or any other legal/contractual impediment, are not subject to withdrawal up to the amount covered by the lien or claim. Nevertheless, should the Depositor succeed in withdrawing the levied amount, in whole or in part, the Depositor shall deposit back the amount corresponding to the amount withdrawn not later than three (3) business days from notice by the BANK. When the account is closed, whether by the BANK or by the Depositor, the BANK may require the Depositor to surrender all unused checks before the balance of the account is released.

The BANK does not warrant availability of foreign currency notes at all times to meet withdrawal requirements. In case of non-availability of currency notes, withdrawals may be in the form of telegraphic transfers, demand drafts, mail transfers or in the currency which is legal tender in the Philippines. If the Depositor opts to withdraw in the form of telegraphic transfer, demand draft or mail transfer, the same shall be construed as an application for such services and may be subject to the usual processing fees.

Any funds transfer request should be made in writing and signed by the Depositor. Should the requested transaction be incapable of being performed by the BANK in the manner instructed by the Depositor, without the BANK disclosing details about the Depositor and/or the Depositor’s account, the execution of the funds transfer request shall be deemed as the Depositor’s express authority to the BANK to make such disclosure within the terms of the applicable regulation, and without any need for any prior notice or further consent or documentation. By the foregoing authority, the BANK shall not be in violation of any of the secrecy laws for making such disclosures.

The Statement of Account (SOA) is the official record of the transactions and balances of the account. It shall be provided to the Depositor periodically either through pick-up from the Depository Branch, by mail or electronic mail/e-mail to the address/e-mail address provided by the Depositor depending on the regulatory requirements on the matter. As advised in the SOA, the Depositor should promptly notify the BANK’s Audit Division of any exceptions noted in the statement within ten (10) calendar days from receipt thereof. Otherwise, the Depositor shall be deemed to have accepted the correctness of the statement. For a Depositor opting to have his SOA mailed or e-mailed, the Depositor shall inform the BANK immediately in case of any change in address. Should the Depositor request for a statement of account prior to his cycle date, his account shall be debited for the processing fee. Special statements, on the other hand, shall be available at the Depository branch for pick-up by the Depositor or his duly authorized representative. The BANK reserves the right to destroy monthly bank statements including any related cancelled/paid checks and/or any debit/credit memos remaining unclaimed for a period of 90 calendar days from the time the SOA was made available for pick-up, or from the time it was returned by post office, or from the time the SOA, and scanned copies of the issued checks (if available) were sent via e-mail. Securing the designated e-mail address against unauthorized use shall be the sole responsibility of the Depositor. In opting to receive the SOA via e-mail, the Depositor assumes the risks involved in e-mail transmissions, such as but not limited to, the risk that the information may not be delivered, the account information becomes exposed to unknown third parties and lose its confidential nature, the risk that the e-mail account is hacked and such other risks inherent in e-mail communications. The e-mail of the SOA to the Depositor is one-way and informational in nature. Sending an e-mail message to the e-mail address used by the BANK in sending the SOA, or replying to e-mail messages sent by the BANK therefrom will produce no useful results. Further, the BANK shall not be faulted in cases when the SOA is not e-mailed to the Depositor due to circumstances beyond the BANK’s control, including but not limited to network congestion, transmission interference, internet/e-mail service provider downtime, etc. As such, the Depositor agrees to hold the BANK free and harmless from liability for any damages that may arise as a result thereof.
Checkbooks shall be issued only to the accountholder personally, or to an authorized representative upon receipt by the BANK of an accomplished and duly signed checkbook requisition slip. The Depositor shall exercise care in requisitioning for additional checkbooks. To ensure continuous supply of the checkbooks, the requisition by the Depositor must be made at least one (1) month in advance of the expected delivery. Checkbooks shall be issued to the Depositor for a fee to be debited from the account of the Depositor upon checkbook order (via automatic checkbook re-order facility, over-the-counter request or alternate channels). Charges are subject to increase without prior notice to the client. Checkbooks requested through different alternate channels are deemed final. Checkbook requests done through the use of other available facilities (ATM, Phone Banking, etc.) shall be processed accordingly. It is understood, however, that requests made by accounts with insufficient balance to cover the cost of checkbook shall not be processed. Ordered checkbooks must be claimed within 90 calendar days from the date of requisition, otherwise, these checkbooks shall be destroyed. The Depositor shall safeguard all utilized checks with utmost care to preclude any possible loss and/or pilferage. Checkbook loss should be reported to the BANK immediately in writing. The BANK shall not be held liable for lost checks which are honored by the BANK before written notice of loss is received. The Depositor shall be fully responsible for all checks issued under the Depositor’s account. Neither the BANK nor its correspondent bank(s) shall examine the checks for any irregularity. The BANK also reserves the right not to release the checkbooks ordered if account is deemed improperly handled.

STOP PAYMENT ORDER (SPO)
The SPO shall take effect on the next banking day from the date of the acceptance of the Depositor’s request for an SPO. The Depositor shall not hold the BANK liable if payment is made or accrued before the SPO is effected. No SPO or the renewal thereof shall bind the BANK unless: (i) made in writing; (ii) the check is described in all particulars; and (iii) served upon any Authorized Officer of the BANK’s branch where the account is maintained. The service of a request for stop payment, or its renewal, upon the branch of account shall not constitute notice, actual or constructive, to any other branch. The SPO shall be effective for 180 days counted from receipt by the BANK of the request, renewable for no longer than another period of 180 days counted from receipt by the BANK of the request for renewal. By directing the BANK to stop payment on a check, the Depositor agrees to indemnify, and hold the BANK harmless against, and from any and all losses, claims, damages or expenses which the Depositor or any person shall suffer as a result of the non-payment of any check under the Depositor’s SPO. In case of joint “or” accounts, the SPO shall be made only by the drawer of the check.

PASSBOOK OR RECORD BOOK
The Depositor shall be furnished with a Passbook or Recordbook where the BANK shall, upon presentation of the Passbook or Recordbook, record all deposits/withdrawals made. No entries in the Passbook or Recordbook shall be made except by the BANK. However, mere possession of the Passbook or Recordbook shall not be presumed or deemed as acceptable proof of the balance of the account as deposits and withdrawals may be allowed at the BANK’s discretion, without presentation of the Passbook or Recordbook. The Passbook or Recordbook is neither transferable nor assignable, and cannot be pledged or assigned as security in favor of any party other than the BANK (for Passbook). Except for computer-generated entries, typewritten or manual entries, and any other alteration, superimposition or erasure on the passbook shall render said entries void and invalid. In case of any discrepancy or inconsistency between the entries in the Passbook or Recordbook and Bank Records, the latter shall prevail and shall be the basis for allowing withdrawals and other transactions.
In the payment of funds or transaction of other business on the account, during the lifetime of all the joint accountholders, the BANK shall follow the authority given by the Depositors in the AOSIF or SIF thus, any one, any two, any three, all, etc. Any of the Depositors may deposit and endorse for deposit in the account, checks, drafts, bills of exchange and/or other instruments for the payment of money payable or purporting to belong to any one or more of the Depositors.
